Google do not want to forget the Nexus version of Korean company (Samsung) and still paying attention. At long last the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is being bumped up with latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean version officially though OTA. Android 4.3 for Galaxy Nexus brought a remarkable package of new features to make your life a bit more trouble-free such as the auto dialer, Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth low energy), OpenGL ES 3.0, fast user-switching, support of many languages and much more.
Your lucky Galaxy Nexus can be updated with OTA (over the air) notification, so pick up the phone, go to Setting>About Phone and there check out the Android 4.3 software update notification for your Galaxy Nexus to experience the latest version but if you are not able to bump up official OTA notification or cannot wait for that, simply download and install Android 4.3 update for Galaxy Nexus manually.
There are a lot of reasons that forced Samsung to select the slogan “life companion” for their flagship smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy S4 does include a very decent package of apps and features that you may utilize to enjoy a good life, but be honest and tell me that are pre-installed apps are enough to support you? Do you not need to install any more apps? I know a lot of stuff depend on personal choice but here I must say that almost everyone needs to bump up more apps to phone to enhance the usability.
However the 16GB version of Galaxy S4 offers around just 9.5GB of free storage space to use that is not enough for many of us, however you can use an extra SD card on phone to increase the storage space and you can store apps on SD card to save your internal space as the apps-to-SD support is coming to shiny GS4 through a new software update that is available in German as for on unlocked Galaxy S4 variant.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is one of great release of this year that shown remarkable changes in Android market, the Galaxy S4 is now ringing loudly all around the world and developers are bumping up their favorite tweaks and MODs to enhance the usability of phone. The Verizon version of Galaxy S4 I545 can now taste the famed LiquidSmooth ROM to experience water-themed UI. It gives a beautiful water-like look and feel to your Galaxy S4, however you can enjoy your own themes using theme-engine.
The LiquidSmooth is modified AOSP ROM but includes remarkable tweaks. The LiquidSmooth ROM for Galaxy S4 is available in nightly build as for, it’s a good way to bring changes easily, if you’re not familiar with term “nightly”, it can generate a new build on daily bases to bring new changes automatically, however keep in mind that it may also bring bugs.
The Galaxy S4 I545 LiquidSmooth ROM is a powerful package of handy tweaks to experience new good things, it obtains optimized string handling routines, the custom lockscreen, Chronus clock widget, custom hardware and software features, the transparent navigation bar and status bar, improved power menu, volume rocker music controls, full rotation and a lot more.
As usual, Samsung put the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean version in action for their latest Samsung Galaxy S4 flagship smartphone that do not support the USB Mass Storage feature, however the Galaxy S4 enjoys the latest MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) service, you may say that MTP is a fine solution to share data between computer and smartphone but many of us don’t love it because of working errors. On the other side of this issue, UMS is a simple and fast way to transfer your files from Galaxy S4 to computer and even it is well-matched with almost all of computer’s operating systems. So we should switch back to USB Mass Storage on Galaxy S4?
The Samsung Galaxy S4 enjoys very useful features but it still doesn’t mean that you have nothing to add on phone to improve the usability like as we know well that many of us love to play flash videos and games but it is not possible on GS4 by the virtue of Samsung’s blocking case and even the Flash Player does not work on the pre-packed browser of phone. If you take a brief view of internet, you will notice the importance of Adobe Flash Player but it’s been removed from the Google Play Store.
So do you want to ignore the Flash Player at this time? I do not think so and this is the reason that might be forcing development community to find a way and they seem successful. We have a way to get rid of this irritating matter, as I said above that the Flash Player is not well-matched with stock Galaxy S4 browser but you can enjoy the same on third-party browser such as the famed Mozilla Firefox. However the flash player has been tested on Chrome and Dolphin browser and it doesn’t work.
The shiny Xperia Z is Sony’s flagship smartphone that was expected to come with latest Android version but it disappointed and runs the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, I know the phone is great by the virtue of a lot of pre-installed features but I’m sure that many of us want to improve the usability of phone with latest Android 4.2.2 and waiting. We’ve finally got the good news, a recognized XDA develop member DooMLoRD has released a leaked build of OTA Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean build for your Sony Xperia Z even the build ready for installation via recovery. This leaked ROM suggest us that the Sony Xperia Z may get the Android 4.2.2 officially soon in near future.
Since this is a leaked Sony Xperia Z Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean build, you may expect a few things not work but nothing is reported yet. Do note that you should not crossflash the ROM and kernel. Keep in mind that this Android 4.2.2 build is compatible with just Xperia Z C6602/C6603, so do not try on Xperia ZL or tablet.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 enjoys with very elegant features that help a lot and might be this is the reason that forced Korean’s giant to select the slogan “life companion” for Galaxy S4 and now the phone is receiving handy custom ROMs to experience the life a bit more.

The Sony Xperia Z with water resistant is quite one of best smartphone and pretty spectacular, Sony did a great job with a larger sharp display, camera and resistant of water and dust. The Xperia Z drives Jelly Bean and offers great features that a good phone should but if you are still not able to ignore custom ROMs to improve the usability.
The eXistenZ ROM for Sony Xperia Z is very good choice of time, this is black edition of Sony Xperia Z eXistenZ ROM to give a dark but beautiful touch to your phone, feature list of eXistenZ is also remarkable, you can rotate the lockscreen, the contact image is quite big, you can record calls, there’s a 36 DPI navigation, DoCoMo status bar, slide show multimedia message, message composition taps, white balance option, and much more.
The LG Optimus G brings a decent bunch of specs and features but I won’t say the most top-rated phone it even runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and I don’t have official detail that whether LG will push Android 4.2.2 update to phone or not. However it doesn’t really mean that you cannot enjoy anything latest related from Android 4.2 version because it seems that the Android development community love to support all Android users, LG Optimus G users can update phone to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Avatar custom ROM released by a senior XDA developer member bippi79.
